Media Are Welcome to Use Webcam Images with Proper Attribution
Yosemite National Park, February 28, 2023 — Yosemite Conservancy’s new, live high-definition webcam features a view of world-famous El Capitan, Half Dome and Yosemite Valley showcasing the drama of winter storms and snow capped High Sierra peaks. The new view creates a quartet of Yosemite Conservancy webcams at yosemite.org revealing nature’s power and beauty with scenes of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and High Sierra.
“Our webcams transport viewers to Yosemite to surprise and inspire, and to remind us of how important it is to preserve and protect this natural treasure,” said Yosemite Conservancy President Frank Dean.
The left side of the new El Capitan webcam features its namesake, a vertical granite rock formation known to climbers around the world that rises 3,000 feet above the Valley floor — or the height of three Eiffel Towers. Centerframe are Half Dome and Yosemite Valley.
The live-streamed Yosemite Falls webcam shows one of the tallest waterfalls in North America, with a total drop of 2,424 feet. The High Sierra webcam features Yosemite’s high country, including Half Dome and Clouds Rest, while the Half Dome webcam is live streamed from Ahwahnee Meadow looking upward. The webcams are maintained through support of Yosemite Conservancy donors.
